Re: Updating my Linux Mint 17.2 to 17.3

Duplication is fine: all new questions deserve a new thread. That's even in the forum rules and it's totally fine.

Why would you want this thread deleted? Asking questions is a contribution to the community: people will probably do their best answer your questions, for the benefit of all.

This topic refers to Synaptic no longer being applicable to Linux Mint. I don't understand because it seems to work on Cinnamon 18.3.
Synaptic can be used on Mint 18.3 to install and uninstall packages, but not to do upgrades.

Solve it with this terminal command:

Code: Select all

chmod -v 700 $HOME
Repeat this in each user account that needs the same protection.
Interesting. What exactly is it that this command does?

Re: seamonkey browser problems

Odd... I have had no such problems with SeaMonkey. I'm using Noscript, HTTPSEverywhere, uBlock Origin (and some interface stuff). All working.

Have you tried Waterfox? It's closer to Firefox.

Re: "Please switch to another Linux Mint mirror. Your APT cache is corrupted"

Could you edit your original post and place the SOLVED in the Subject: line. The problem here is that Lakef isn't the topic starter, so... no, they can't. That's a clear disadvantage of piggybacking on an existing subject (and a fine reason why it's formally against forum rules to do so). I'll do i...

You can install a light OS and a light browser but the web itself is heavy these days. :?

Re: Why Linux Mint?

Why Mint, why Cinnamon? Both of them are rather popular, so they apparently fill a need. I use them because they are the first OS and DE I ran into (when I went looking) that immediately felt like something I could use. They felt understandable and friendly to me, as a newcomer. And I had no reason ...

Re: Is it possible to install LM 19 over LM 18.3 without removing the older version

We've been informed that there will be an upgrade path to do an inplace upgrade from 18.3 to 19. That is not an installation, as such, but it may still be what you're looking for.

Re: Should I try Cinnamon ?

I would not install it at all. I would download it, make a bootable USB stick, boot my computer from that and then test it like that. If it's too heavy for the hardware, you will know... and your current MATE installation will be intact.

Re: Should I try Cinnamon ?

If I were you, I'd try it out from a USB stick... but I predict that it will be a bit on the heavy side for 2GB and it may well feel a bit slow and sluggish.
